Hudson, A. E.
A. E. Hudson – Durango Democrat – November 20, 1902 – Wounded Robber – Found with Bullet Hole Through His Stomach – Bandits Cornered – Last Night and Hot Fight Ensued – Trinidad, Colo., Nov. 19 – The Colorado and Southern train robber shot by Express Messenger Schriber during the attempt to rob the car last night was found near the scene of the attempted hold-up this morning with a bullet hole through his stomach. He died a short time afterward. The man refused to give his name or those of his companions. Letters on his person, however, led to his identification as A. E. Hudson, a coal miner who had been working at the Gray Creek mines. Alexander Clark, supposed to be one of the gang, was arrested while boarding a Denver and Rio Grande train here this afternoon at 2 o'clock. He stoutly denied his guilt and says he can prove he was working in the mine at Gray Creek at the time the robbery occurred. The officers claim the shoes he still wears are the same that could be traced near the scene of the hold-up. He is about 30 years old and single. Mrs. Hudson, the wife of the dead robber, was arrested this morning and is now in the county jail here. She denies all knowledge of the hold-up and says her husband accompanied by Alexander Clark, started on a hunting trip yesterday. The gun Hudson used was found however under the mattress on the bed in her house. She finally admitted it was brought to her house about 1 o'clock this morning by Guy La Croix, another suspect. Posses are now scouring the country in search of La Croix. A rumor at 10:30 tonight is to the effect that the remaining two robbers have been surrounded at the head of Frijolle creek and a hard fight between the posse and the robbers is being fought. Yuma Pioneer – November 28, 1902 – Colorado & Southern Train is Robbed Near Trinidad – Trinidad, Colo., Nov. 19 – Passenger train No. 7 on the Colorado & Southern, bound north from Fort Worth to Denver and due here at 10:30 last night, was held up at 10 o'clock near Beshoar station, twelve miles south of Trinidad. The train was in charge of Conductor Dennis Sullivan and John Gilfoil, engineer. The robbers were five in number, and one of them flagged the train with a red lantern while the others kept in hiding in the brush. When the train stopped two of the men mounted the engine cab and commanded the engineer and fireman, at the point of guns, to get off the engine. This order was promptly obeyed. The engineer was ordered to uncouple the express car, but instead of doing it he simply uncoupled the air hose, and the robbers, after firing a few shots to intimidate the passengers, mounted the engine and ordered the engineer to pull ahead with the express car. The train was pulled ahead about a mile from the first stop, to a lonely place, where it was evidently decided upon to commit the robbery. There three other robbers joined the others at the last stopping place. One robber took charge of the fireman, while the other four took the engineer to the express car and had him yell to the express messenger to open the car, saying that he was the engineer and for the man inside not to shoot. The messenger, whose name is W. H. Schriber of Fort Worth, Texas, in the meantime had put out all the lights in his car and fortified himself behind some trunks. The robbers fired several shots through the express car door, and finally, when they could not make the messenger open the door, they ordered the engineer to light the fuse on a sack of dynamite about five pounds of explosive, which they placed under the car. The robbers and the engineer then ran forward to the engine. The charge failed to explode. The express messenger then opened the door of his car about a foot and fired at the band of robbers with a shotgun loaded with buckshot. One of the bandits fell wounded. His companions picked up the wounded man and disappeared in the brush, while a fusillade of shots between Express Messenger Schriber and Conductor Sullivan on one side and the robbers on the other was exchanged. The train then proceeded on its way to Trinidad, arriving here forty minutes late. Railroad men here think the robbers were after the Colorado & Southern pay car, which arrived about an hour before No. 7 was due. The pay car carried a large amount of money, but No. 7 carried little cash. Trinidad and the surrounding country has been the scene of great activity to-day. Several posses have been scouring the country east and south of here, but at this hour no captures have been reported, with the exception of Alex. Clark, who is believed to be one of the robbers. He was arrested by Under Sheriff Kreeger at 2 o'clock this afternoon as he was boarding the Rio Grande north-bound train here. Clark drew his time check from the Grey Creek mine early this morning, and at once left, not even telling his most intimate companions where he was going. Under Sheriff Kreeger, while at Grey Creek this afternoon, got a tip to the effect that Clark was bound for Trinidad, and would leave on the Rio Grande this afternoon. Kreeger made a break-neck ride of nine miles in thirty-five minutes, and arrived here just in time to catch Clark as he was boarding the train. Clark denies having been in the party of robbers and states that he can prove that he was working in the Grey Creek mine all night last night. Hudson, the robber shot by Messenger Schriber, died at 4 o'clock this morning. He refused to say a word in reference to the hold-up. On the special train sent out to pick him up, he was closely questioned, but all the satisfaction that could be secured from him was: “I'm cold; wait until I get warm, then I'll tell you about it.” Up to the last he refused to say a word that would throw any light on the identity of his companions. Seven buckshot from the gun in the hands of Express Messenger Schriber entered the small of his back. His body is now at R. G. Sipe's morgue in this city and will not be disposed of until after the investigation and inquest, which will be held to-morrow, when Express Messenger Schriber will arrive. Colorado & Southern Detective Reno arrived tonight and will take charge of the posse.

Hudson, Frank
Frank Hudson - Colorado Weekly Chieftain - June 1, 1868 – Lynching of Horse Thieves - In another item we give an account of the stealing of four horses belonging to Mr. Lewis Conley, of this county, and the escape and pursuit of the thieves. Since writing the item alluded to, we have received further news of the affair. The pursuing party returned on Thursday morning, bringing in the horses. It seems the thieves were tracked as far as Chico creek, going down the Arkansas, and there the trail was lost sight of; but for good reasons it was thought they had gone down the river, Statesward; and so the pursuing party pushed on, traveling night and day. When they arrived at Fort Lyon, they learned that the thieves had passes there, from a description given of the men and horses. General Penrose, who is not at all partial to horse thieves, furnished fresh horses and a squad of soldiers to the pursuers, who thus reinforced pushed on and overtook the two men, about fifty miles below Fort Lyon. The fugitives were immediately taken into custody, without resistance which they saw would be useless. A "high court of impeachment" was summarily improvised, and the prisoners were called on to plead to the charges brought by the "managers." They made a full confession of the crime: gave their names as Charles Watson and Frank Hudson; that they had hired to Mr. Conley in Denver, about two months ago; that they were deserters from the army; that they now expected their fate, and seemed indifferent as to what might be. We might, by giving romantic details, make a sensational story for eastern papers, as to the fate of these two scalawags; but we choose simply to say that without loss of time, or expensive preparations, they were hanged to the limb of a "noble old cottonwood" until they were dead. Such is the retributive justice meted out to this class of border ruffians.
